Uranium North Completes Phase 1 Drilling at Amer Lake, Assays Pending

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 27, 2009) - Uranium North Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UNR) provides an update on the Phase 1 drill program on its 100% owned Amer Lake uranium project in Nunavut. The in-fill drilling program has been completed. A total of 1216 metres in 10 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes were completed to test continuity of the uranium mineralization within the Main Zone deposit. Based on scintillometer (RS-120 Super Gamma Scintillometer) readings, anomalous radioactivity has been intersected in all of the drill holes, providing indications for continuity of mineralization between drill holes within the Main Zone.

A total of 586 RC samples will be assayed at the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) Geoanalytical Laboratories. Assay results are expected within 4 to 6 weeks.

The Company is currently preparing for the Phase 2 drill program, designed to test for continuation of uranium mineralization down dip and along strike of the deposit.
